We just came back from KL, after almost one week there meeting clients and friends. And of course, having KL food! Besides the hawker food offerings in Petaling Street, we had a chance to try out different cuisines as well. Our KL friends often know how to nose out a good makan place!
The trip wasn’t really pre-planned; we just decided it was time to get out of Penang for a while to meet some important contacts in KL.
Plus we were invited for the Apostrophe Gallery art exhibition at Central Market Annexe as Krista was one of the 10 finalists in the DIGI 16 word Short Short Story competition (which garnered some 8,500 entries!). She had her 16-word story turned into an art piece by Saiful Razman, one of the three artists commissioned by DIGI. Find out more from her blog.
We also had the good fortune to have met up with an old friend of Krista’s who introduced us to a friend of hers, Kenneth. Kenneth was a pleasure to talk to; he was an ex-advertising man and he had us in stitches with his cross-cultural encounters. Kenneth is also one of the sharpest people we’ve met and with a delicious sense of (Brit) humour too! Our one-hour lunch at Precious (the restaurant run by Old China Cafe at Central Market – gorgeous place to lunch, by the way) stretched into two, and we still hadn’t had enough of his wit. What a pity we had to leave for our next appointment.
Over all, I believe it was a rejuvenating trip as we could even squeeze in a trip to our favourite bookstore, Kinokuniya at KLCC. And like all our book trips, it ended with us buying more books! If it were not for some books which were out of stock, we would have carted home even more books. There goes our book budget again this month.
But now, it’s back to work! Will blog more later.
